Crabs will eat just about anything they get their claws on...they grab a booby and go to town.

Something, something Amelia Earhart.

Well, let's just feed one of these crabs a live chicken, and then cook up the crab since it will now be stuffed with minced chicken.

I imagine old bay will really bring out the flavors.

When will Michael Vick start having crab vs chicken fights?

That crab grabbed the bird by the booby. I see a bright future for it in US government.

I am Tom Joad's Complete Lack of Surprise: Something, something Amelia Earhart.


She was probably pretty safe from tropical murder-crabs in her Dutch attic, but being blind and deaf was probably a big vulnerability against such a slow predator.

Correct non-use of the [Boobies] tag.

They may be good to eat.  The locals used to cook them for fiestas.

But you sure as Fark don't want to be around the smell when they're being cooked.  God awful smell.  Think burning sweaty gym clothes, mixed with death and decay.

Not as traumatizing as the pelican eating a pigeon video.

Well they are a large crab and the locals probably aren't starving them before cooking. Lot's of rotten crap could be in their guts that accounts for the smell.

I debated using SCARY but decided against it. Boobies was never an option.

I don't hate coconuts but I really dislike the texture. I'm also not fond of Crabs for sort of the same reason I don't like Lobster. Too much work for too little meat. Give me cow and pig with a side of fowl.

I grew up going to the Chesapeake bay to visit my grandparents several times a year and I now live in another crab obsessed part of the country. I can get at shellfish meat inhumanely fast and only need my teeth to crack everything besides lobster claws.

/Cows, pigs and poultry are a lot of work too if you start with a live animal.

Roughly equivalent to the force of Trump's ass on the toilet seat as dumps all over twitter.

Not as much work. I'd hack up a fowl, pig or cow. I don't have a weak stomach. I would probably have to get a meat grinder though...

Over 740 pounds force. Holy fark, that's not something I'd want to tangle with. That poor booby didn't have a chance. Those NOPEs might even survive in Australia.

Meanwhile, I did a YouTube search for "coconut crab" and the third one that came up was titled: "Japanese Street Food - GIANT COCONUT CRAB Seafood Okinawa Japan". I guess the Chesapeake Bay Farkers aren't the only ones with the right idea.
